Until We Die by *~Dana~*

“From the moment I started to dance, I knew it.”

The Fallen Swan by Chloe Wright

People admired me. They envied  my dancing, the beauty that leaked from my fingertips, my toes, from the ends of my hair when I twirled around all the other dancers, a glittering spotlight stalking me.”

The Ugly Dancer by ✎Cyder

“The petite five year stood meekly as silent tears built up in her eyes.”

Passions Call by L.D. Taylor

“I slightly part my lips letting out my breath along with that hint of nervous butterflies that had earlier settled in the pit of my stomach. The butterflies leave me and now there’s only one thing left to do.”

Ballet Slippers by Cerulean

“I know I’m dying. No one has to tell me that.”
